The start of a new school year is fast approaching. To make the back to school transition more smooth, we wanted to share a few ideas to make school something the kids can look forward to.
Decorated Textbook Covers
Handmade textbook covers not only keep books in tiptop shape, they also help your kids express their individuality and add a little personality to their school supplies.
Help your kids pick out their favorite colors, fonts and themes for their textbook covers. Having a cool new book cover that reflects their personality can help add excitement to learning new subjects, keep kids from losing their books and encourage them to take better care of their personalized school supplies.
A quick lunchtime reminder that they are loved can help relieve the uneasiness and uncertainty that comes with new subjects, teachers and challenges.
Chores Treat Jar
Hours occupied with class time, homework and playtime leave little room, or motivation, for chores. To make sure you keep your house running smoothly, make chores more rewarding with this cute ticket chore jar by Crystal at A Pumpkin and a Princess.
A ticket reward system not only keeps your house clean, it also works as an effective tool for teaching budgeting, saving and managing money, (or in this case tickets)!
